The welcome was warm and professional, service excellent and all seven courses of the taster menu outstanding. We wanted a special dining experience and were not disappointed. Mouth watering food and exquisite wine made this one of the best meals we have ever had. If you want to indulge your taste buds with beautifully subtle and delicious flavours, this is... More

This is our second visit, to this beautiful restaurant. Simple and elegant. It's not stuffy though the owners and staff are great. Food is usually I believe a set menu. This time it was all about early summer time (peas) lots of clever foody things done the dishes, each mouthful is a different taste/experience. Great little place right on our... More

This was a set menu in a small restaurant but with everything freshly prepared using local ingredients. The menu was interesting and innovative, better than many of the 'celebrity chef' type restaurants, some of which we have visited. The food was well presented and just amazing. We would definitely recommend this place and would visit again

We spotted the Dining Room whilst shopping in Ashbourne one day and liked the look of it and thought we should try it out before we take any friends. It was a lovely meal , beautifully presented , a nice atmosphere ( just 5 tables and 13 guests in on our night ) and both the food and service were... More

My partner and I dined here on a Saturday in May, for a late birthday celebration. The restaurant is small and cosy, overlooking a main road, however as Ashbourne is a small market town, it didn't appear particularly busy, and there is ample parking close by. We had booked a 9 course taster menu, and we weren't disappointed. Knives and... More

We visited the Dinning Room on a Friday in March with friends, the food on the whole was very good, with one or two courses verging on outstanding, but the main course was a little disappointing, it was hanger beef steak, cheek and tongue and just didn't really work for me. The service was very good, and on the whole... More

We both had a really nice time on Valentines night, this being only the second time we've visited The Dining Room since moving to the Dales. Eight courses of lovingly prepared food, subtle flavours and all perfectly cooked with emaculate attention to detail. Excellent service by the staff, prepared to go the extra mile to make sure our dining experience... More
